MODERN & TAP DANCE CLASSES FOR KIDS IN DUBAI
Dancing is a great option to get kids up off the couch and into shape! Join us for our tap dance and modern dance classes that will improve children’s coordination skills, sharpen motor reflexes, encourage creativity, and get them active.
A really varied form of dance, Modern incorporates many different styles from lyrical to funky and everything in between! A lot of emphasis is given to stretching and strengthening the body with lots of floor and limbering exercises. Following the ISTD syllabi, we offer Modern classes from 5 years.

Dance allows children to develop their creativity. They become more than just a passive observer but an active participant in the dance process. This will allow for deeper expression of what they feel about themselves and life around them.
Dance lessons provide your kids them with a better head start because of the improved flexibility and ability to take instructions. Compared to non-dancers, dancers, as they grow up, are more physically fit.
Dance is a physical activity that requires motor skills. These skills are developed during classes and may be applied to other activities outside of dance class.
Children who take dance classes develop good social skills. When they are in a group and performing a routine to an audience, what they learn is that it is important to work as a team because if any one member fails, the entire group will fail.
Dancing requires a lot of stamina. This is obtained through dancing which also helps children develop the ability to perform activities for an extended period without tiring out.
Tap is not like many other dance forms that are learned in a few months. It takes a long time to perfect the basics, as well as to learn enough choreography for some spectacular shows. You can learn to tap at a proficient level in about a year. Students who are willing and able to devote the time and effort needed for uninterrupted training will advance more quickly.
It is always better to practice with a professional instructor on a proper tap dancing surface. Learning to tap dance is like learning any other new skill. It’s not impossible but it takes a lot more work than people realize. It might seem simple in the videos, with good dancers making it look effortless and fun – that’s because they’ve been practicing for years.
The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (or ISTD) is a professional association and trade union representing dance teachers in the United Kingdom. It was founded by Lilian Allinson in 1890 following her appointment as the first ever professor of dance at the Royal Academy of Music.
Modern dance is a form of dance characterized by a large variety in technique, expression and the incorporation of multiple international influences. Modern dance was originally intended for performance by individuals but it soon came to be performed in groups as well. It developed its own style of movement and posture that expressed its body-centered philosophy.
